Belgrade, Feb 22, 2008 – Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica stated today that at a magnificent gathering and prayer service in Belgrade yesterday, the people of Serbia and its youth above all showed what they think of Kosovo-Metohija and that they support the law, justice and freedom.
Kostunica stated for Tanjug news agency that the people of Serbia said what they think of Kosovo-Metohija and of the brutal violence carried out against Serbia.
The youth of Serbia showed it supports the law, justice and freedom and that it rejects the policy of force by Western countries, Kostunica said.
According to Kostunica, by defending Kosovo-Metohija, Serbia is showing that it is defending the values that the democratic world is based on.
And that means that Kosovo is Serbia, Kostunica pointed out.
The Prime Minister also said that there was a big tragedy yesterday as one human life was lost in the rioting.
Together we must do everything so that our opposition to force is in Serbia’s interest and in the interest of the Serbian southern province. Violence and destruction most directly inflict damage on our battle to preserve our state and national interests. All those who support the fictitious state of Kosovo are happy to see violence in Belgrade the Prime Minister said and once again called on all citizens, in the interest of Serbia, for not even the slightest incident to occur.
